The World Health Organization Hypertension Guidelines recommend lifestyle changes in all hypertensive patients. However, such modifications remain difficult to implement. While there are attempts to treat hypertension in Uganda with some emphasis put on lifestyle modification, scientific evidence on the current life style modification practices among hypertensive patients and factors associated are largely unknown. It is possible to prevent the development of hypertension and to lower elevated blood pressure levels by simply adopting a healthy lifestyle.
